The latest Conor McGregor ad sees McGregor once more putting on his acting hat as part of the promotion of the Pegasus World Cup - and it's pretty damn funny.
Conor McGregor is now the self proclaimed "king of MMA and the world's greatest jockey" following yet another advertisement for the Pegasus World Cup. It's the latest installment in the series of mini-episodes which aim to promote the invitational race in Florida. The winner of the event will take home a respectable sum of $12 million, while those who enter the sweepstakes can also earn money.
The SBG fighter once again features alongside comedian, Jon Lovitz - who played Jay 'It Stinks' Shearman and Arnie Ziff during the golden era of The Simpsons.
In the advert, McGregor goes through training to be a world class jockey. During his training routine, the Dubliner seems unfazed by the sweepstakes grand prize before declaring, "I shite a million bucks every morning" to which Lovitz responds "that must be very painful". Hilarious...
There's a few more gags in there but our words couldn't possibly do it justice, take a look at video below to see it in its entirety.

Keep an eye for more upcoming mini episodes in the buildup to the Pegasus World Cup which is scheduled to take place on the 28th of January 2017.
The lightweight champion is using his time away from the sport to further increase his chances of having an acting career once he hangs up his gloves. It is an idea which has pondered for quite some time while receiving the blessing of martial artist turned actor, Jean-Claude Van Damme in the past; "He’ll make a film or two or three, for sure, because he wants to touch everything".
McGregor featured as a playable character in the latest Call of Duty game is expected to appear in Game of Thrones before he inevitably struts on to the stage at the Emmy's to snatch the award from John Turtorro's grips later this year.
